Vikings 57, Bluebombers 18
October 23, 2008

The Vikings scored early and often on their way to a 57-18 win over a SCITS team that never gave up.

The Vikings' Carter Winberg completed several long passes in the first half, resulting in touchdowns by Tyler Annett, Jake Williams, and two scores by Maitland Long. Cole Boersma scored a major on a 35 yard pitch-run, and added 6 more points on a shorter run at the end of the half. Annett made good on all extra point attempts in the first half.

SCITS was able to break open a couple of long plays before the end of the first half, which led to two majors of their own. They were unable to convert either TD.

The Vikings led 42-12 at the half.

The Vikings added 15 more points in the second half. At the start of the 3rd quarter, Cole Boersma again broke open a big play on his way to a 75-yard run into the endzone. A fumbled snap on the extra point attempt led to a 2 point conversion by Carter Winberg. The Bluebombers kept at it though, and scored a major on a long pass and run. Their 2 pt. conversion attempt was unsuccessful. The Vikings finished their scoring when Jacob Packer took the ball on a 70 yard run for a touchdown. Tyler Withers converted the extra point, to finish the game Vikings 57, Bluebomers 18.

On defense, Zach Ghast came up big with a blocked punt, and Brent Elviage covered the flats like a seasoned veteran. Maitland Long complimented his offensive game with a solid turn at the outside linebacker spot.

The Jr. Vikings are in the LSSAA finals, Saturday, November 1st at 4pm at Norm Perry Park.
